Dictionary of American Regional English by Cassidy et al.

  • Sep 1, 2004
Rating:
+5
This dictionary contains approximately 11,000 entries. It is
geared to local idioms or word embodiments. The local idiom,
definition (preferred embodiment) and sometimes the date
are included. For instance, here are examples.

o felt-plant- genus--Horsfordia plant
o fandango- 1807- Spanish dance in triple time
o did - she- cackle-- a children's game

This would be an invaluable research volume for any professional
writer, editor or author.
